The first cookbook I ever bought. My gateway into learning about top chefs and restaurants. For me, paying heed to trends and culinary politics started with opening this book. Through it I began a journey of discovery to all the big names and set me off on a cookbook obsession. I still use the red pepper coulis recipe and I still find the story of Nico Ladenis fascinating. A beautiful book.
